    Surprised my partner with his birthday, the food was lovely but the staff were genuinely so nice and friendly. The terrace upstairs had heating (thank you so much) as the weather turned colder, and I loved the tree in the middle, was such a beautiful place. The fresh pizzas were amazing, will be back!

    Took my daughter for a birthday treat. We wanted to try the rooftop terrace. The staff were lovely but we waited over an hour for our food to arrive. The food was basic and nothing special. I wouldn’t rush to go back.

    We were on holiday and I always book the roof top terrace, the drinks and service was fantastic, best place to get a selfie with the castle behind you and it was beautiful weather too.

    We ate lunch and had a cocktail both extremely good, service was excellent and the setting lovely and quiet. Overall good value for money and the roof top setting something a wee bit different.

    Overall if you are lucky to go on a nice day to the terrace it COULD be worth it. We had a reservation and thought we would be okay as it wasn’t raining, but they were not staffing the terrace. The rest of the restaurant was decent. We had an issue with payment (but thank goodness we requested the receipt) which took a while to correct. The slip we confirmed the total was correct but when we ran our card it was for a different amount. Staff was friendly otherwise, food was decent. We just didn’t get to experience the spectacular 5-star atmosphere of the terrace. Came back the next day to see if they’d have a spot for my sister and I just long enough to have one beer on the roof but they were fully booked for the evening.

    Thank you for your review. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the move inside due to the poor weather. We believed it was the best possible option as the rooftop terrace isn't fully protected from the rain and wind. Additionally, we are sorry for the mistake with the being charged for the wrong table, however we tried to recitfy the issue as quickly as possible. We hope to see you back soon so you can experience the full 5* atmosphere of our terrace. Many thanks Leona
